Can Mahomes be Superman yet again?

After securing the 1st round Bye the last weeks of the regular season, the Chiefs got to sit at home and watch everyone else duke it out in Wild Card Weekend last week.

Mahomes and company have their sights firmly set on another run to the Super Bowl and a chance to lift the Lombardi Trophy.

Patrick Mahomes has been awesome yet again this season, leading the Chiefs to a 14-3 record and another #1 Seed in the super competitive AFC.

With it all on the line yet again, Mahomes will surely do something spectacular to help the Chiefs get one step closer to another trip to the big dance.

Standing in their way is the Jaguars, who are riding their own spectacular wave and will look to spoil the party in Arrowhead.

Will the Jaguars Incredible Run Continue?

It has truly been a sensational run by the Jaguars.

They clawed their way back into the AFC South race by winning 4 straight games.

Then, they won their 5th straight to clinch the AFC South and go to the post season.

THEN, they won their 6th straight with a miraculous 27 point comeback last week against the Chargers.

Sheesh.

The Jaguars are riding incredibly high right now, and a lot of it could be attributed to the play of QB Trevor Lawrence. I mean, he has been sensational.

But for me, this has been a masterclass in coaching by Head Coach Doug Peterson.

He has game in and game out rallied the troops, never been too high or too low, and has consistently made the right calls in every game.

It will be fun to see how he prepares his Jaguars team to try and upset the mighty Chiefs in a Saturday afternoon slugfest.

Prediction

The Jaguars have been on an incredible run. As a fan of the Tennesee Titans, I have to tip my hat to what they have accomplished this season and give credit where credit is due.

But I think their run comes to an end on Saturday.

One of the biggest weaknesses of this Jaguars team is the secondary.

While it was amazing what they did last week to come back and beat the Chargers, their defense got exposed by Justin Herbert and the Chargers passing attack.

HC Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes are going to come out and look to expose the Jags on the back end all game long and it will be too much for the Jaguars to handle.

Give me the Chiefs to cover and move on to the AFC Championship game, in style.

Best Bet

Chiefs -9 (-110)


Player Prop of the Game

Patrick Mahomes o310.5 Passing Yards (-114)

As I mentioned, everything is set up here for Mahomes to have a huge game.

He had 331 yards through the air in the matchup earlier this season with the Jaguars and I expect him to come out looking to sling it again.

The Jaguars are 6th worst in the NFL for passing yards allowed and Mahomes led the league in passing yards, with a whopping 5,250 passing yards.

I am not overthinking this one. Patrick will do what Patrick does and give the Jaguars secondary all they can handle, and so much more.
